Nancy Anne Stimson

October 6, 1937 – April 2, 2023

Nancy Anne Stimson, from Fairplay, Colorado, peacefully passed in her sleep from natural causes on April 2, 2023.

Born Nancy Anne Nettleman, October 6, 1937, in Long Beach, California to parents John and Janice Nettleman (Deceased).

Nancy graduated from San Jose State, California with a Degree in Education. She was a proud sister of Delta Gamma, San Jose State.

Nancy married Dennis Stimson (deceased)  in 1957.  They later divorced in 1973. She never remarried.

She is survived by her three loving sons Barrie, Craig and Gary as well as her sister, Valerie Tilley.

Nancy is preceded in death by her brother George Nettleman.

She is loved and fondly remembered by her sevengrand children.

Nancy always lived in the moment and on her own terms. She loved the mountains and her farm animals, especially the horses, goats and burros. The only thing she loved more were her sons. She gave freely and unconditionally to those who became her friends. She loved fighting vigorously for what she felt was right and always advocated for the underdogs in her community. 

Nancy was always interested in national politics and very active in local politics. A cause she was most proud of was Vision 2020. She never complained and worked tirelessly on the things she believed in.     Many people did not know her by her actual name but fondly remembered her as the “Fire Extinguisher Lady”, “Firewood Lady”, “Goat Lady” and “Poinsettia Lady”.

We are looking forward to celebrating her life later in the summer of 2023 in Fairplay.
